Dive 225: Halfmoon Caye, Lighthouse Reef (Belize)

Temperature: 27 C
Visibility: 15 metres

We dropped down to the top of the reef where it was very sandy with patches of seagrass. There were some resident garden eels poking their heads out of the sand. It was also the first time I saw conches, and the DM picked one up and showed us the little conch hiding inside.

We swam through a crack on the edge of the reef to see the wall drop off into the blue. There were huge barrel sponges, tube sponges, gorgonians, whips – a beautiful reef. Also saw 3 eagle rays in the distance, lion fish and lots of colourful reef fish and a queen triggerfish.
